DVD of the Week
This week's DVD of the Week is 'Loving Vincent'.

 Vincent Van Gogh is larger than life, though this imaginative biopic shows his life in vivid, if surreal, detail. The entire film is animated paintings, so stop right there if that doesn't fascinate you. By animating many of Vincent's emotive works, 'Loving Vincent' tells the story of life, death, and art, in as fitting a way, apparently, as one can imagine.
